When the vendor of Joewen Park at 530B Broadford -Kilmore Road Kilmore East retired in 2000 after fifty years of involvement in market gardening and horticulture he purchased this attractively sited and highly productive rural holding as a family destination and to keep his hand in with a rural interest.
The property was named Joewen Park to combine his christian name John with that of his wife Wendy.
But John says after working all his life the time has come to fully retire and downsize so Joewen Park is on the market.
Selling agents Rodwells Ruralco Property at Kilmore are seeking Expressions of Interest closing on Friday 12 October at their office at 5 pm.
The first consideration is that the property stands out as one of the best small farm holdings in the local area and it is about eight kilometres north of the Kilmore township and about 6.5 kilometres south of Broadford both thriving regional service and now strongly growing commuter towns.
Joewen Park has about 800 metres of frontage to the main road, in fact the old Hume Highway alignment.
Since they purchased the holding some eighteen years ago the vendors have undertaken major building works.
The first of these is the substantial brick family home with four bedrooms, an office, rumpus room, with an open plan design and a country style kitchen where everything is in place.
They also sited the building with a north east access to trap the best aspects of the local area.
Importantly they have surrounded the home with a stylish established garden and a circular access driveway to its well set back position.
Further it overlooks a gazebo or an entertainment area which has been well used by the vendors and their family.
The second building campaign was to create arrange of practical and serviceable shedding including a shearing shed, a six bay machinery shed with a concrete floor and power with a large rain water tank adjacent with additional structures including a woodshed and farm style storage spaces.
There is also a good set of sheep handling facilities, including yards and loading race.
The vendor John says he has run up to four sheep to the acre as all the five paddocks have reticulated stock water to troughs and dams as well, with attractive vegetation retained along the fence lines.
There is also an 80 metre deep quality bore equipped with an electric pump that delivers about 4,000 litres per hour.
An extra paddock with an area of twelve hectares or thirty acres is separated by a double frontage to the local Dry Creek, which even in the driest summer retains a run of pools.
John the vendor says he will miss the rural tranquillity and the open spaces, including the abundant bird life and considers the easy access to two established and both rapidly developing towns, together with being about an hour’s regular commute principally by the Hume Freeway are the real pluses of this property.
“We set up Joewen Park to give us enjoyment in the latter stages of our lives and to accommodate and entertain our family, but the passage of time brings everything to the point when it is right to sell and take it easy”.
